Tahaliyani, when my Advocates appeared, the State was represented by the Assistant Public Prosecutor, and Mr. Hemant Patil was represented by his Advocate. After briefly hearing the submissions and upon perusal of the Notice, the Hon’ble Judge passed an order observing that it is highly questionable as to whether such a Notice could have been issued by the Learned Magistrate when my case is sub-judice before the Hon’ble Court of Sessions.
